Romelu Lukaku could make surprise Chelsea comeback

Conte prepared to pay £80m for Lukaku this summer

Belgian international Romelu Lukaku could be the subject of a record move from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The former Blues striker has progressed well at Everton over the years, and his four-goal display versus Bournemouth appears to have revived interest from the Blues.

According to Yahoo Sport, the 23-year-old could make a possible return to Stamford Bridge in the summer with Antonio Conte keen on adding a young marksman to his ranks.

The Blues did manage to sign Michy Batshuayi from Marseille last summer, but he has failed to convince the Italian of his abilities.

Lukaku currently has a £80m release clause in his contract, and the Blues will have to match his valuation in full if they are to convince the Toffees into a sale.

The Belgian has amassed an impressive tally of 78 goals in 152 outings for Everton since arriving from Chelsea in the summer of 2013- initially on a one-year loan contract.
